Jack Carter (Caine), a London hard man, has come home to Newcastle to bury his brother. In the process he begins to suspect foul play and sets out to bury whoever was behind the "accident" that led to his trip home. Nobody can feel safe as he tears through the seedy 70s underworld of a city the law leaves to run itself.There is nothing scarier than an English hard man. Put Jack Carter at one end of an alley, the Terminator, The Wolf Man and Agent Smith at the other and Id be running to the latter end. Get Carter pretty much hinges on Michael Caine's flawless portrayal of a ticked-off thug out for revenge - and it couldn't be better for it. Don't get me wrong, the flawless pacing, the style, the precisely written script and gripping story sure help, but this is Caine's opus. Not only one of the greatest English films of all time, but one of the greatest films of all time.PS. If you ever made the mistake of watching the Stallone re-make, the only way to right that wrong is to watch the original! Again and again.
